The power of Amiibo knows no bounds, after Nintendo and developers Vicarious Visions revealed that Nintendo characters such as Donkey Kong and Bowser will be appearing in Skylanders Super Chargers Wii U.
Announced during this morning’s Direct Presentation, the game will support these new-fangled Amiibo hybrid figurines, replete with “complete move sets and upgrade trees of powers and abilities.” To begin with, The Big N has confirmed Turbo Charged Donkey Kong and Hammer Slam Bowser, with plans to introduce more personas from the publisher’s beloved catalogue in due time.
Those two figurines can be carried over to any Nintendo game that supports Bowser and/or Donkey Kong, such as Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, for instance.
For the uninitiated, Skylanders SuperChargers introduces vehicular mayhem into Activision’s lucrative toys-to-life franchise, and the trailer above showcases the kind of action fans can expect through the addition of Nintendo characters. After all, Bowser and Donkey Kong caused enough chaos in the Mario Kart series, so we can only imagine what’s in store ahead of their transition to Skylanders.
Skylanders SuperChargers is penciled in for a September release across iOS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and of course Wii U,
